Welcome to Fat Church
Spreading a Gospel of Body Liberation
United Church of Christ pastor and theological educator Anastasia Kidd reviews the history of medicalized diet culture, fat studies, beauty, body policing—and the white supremacist machinations underpinning them—in order to advocate for a society rooted in bodily liberation for all. Fat Church offers a disruption to social habits of shame and remembers the theology of abundance that calls us all beloved by God.
